Why do you need insurance for your older cat?
Your pet is more than just a pet. They are a best friend, a companion and a family member. They are always there for you and constantly offer you unconditional love and friendship. You are their whole life, and no one knows them like you do. Sadly, as they get older, they may start to need more veterinary care. It’s at this point, that many owners wish they had taken out insurance earlier. However, most insurers will not offer insurance for accident and illness cover for pets over eight years of age – although will typically continue to offer cover if the policy was first taken out before the eighth birthday.
The good news with Vetsure is that accident and illness cover is offered for any pets up to 10 years of age and, provided premiums are kept up to date, cover will continue to be provided for the remaining life of the pet. Although, up until recently the options for uninsured pets after 10 years of age are fairly limited.
It can be a very distressing time for owners to see their once vibrant and energetic pet become slower and less enthusiastic as they enter old age. It can also be heart breaking to see them in pain and require veterinary care, but what if you don’t already have insurance in place for your senior pet?
